American Jiu Jitsu official definition: a unique, scenario-based self-defense art that teaches students to respond to realistic situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and knowledge of human anatomy.
In layman’s terms? American Jiu Jitsu is the evolution of the more widely known Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after folk wrestling was introduced into the artform in the 90s. Folk-style wrestling originated in the colonies, shortly after America was founded. AJJ utilizes the focus on physics and anatomical knowledge to regain control of any situation.
